Defender of Libby Gets Nowhere on The Newshour

Victoria Toensing was a guest last night with Richard Ben Veniste on The Newshour talking with Ray Suarez about the Libby Verdict. Toensing got nowhere when she tried to claim the prosecution led by U.S. attorney Fitzgerald was politically motivated and a mere case of he said/she said. I commend Ray Suarez for not letting her get away with her attempts to color the prosecution with political paint. Suarez challenged her on each point to give reasons and explanations. That's the way it needs to be done. Jim Lehrer, Margaret Warner, please take notice. No more passive complicity on the part of reporters/interviewers with baseless and conclusionary statements of partisans.
